What is it about?
Nearly 10,000 first responder reports are analyzed to provide a unique perspective of intimate partner violence incidents and the home environments in which they occur.
Why is it important?
Intimate partner violence most commonly occurs during summer months and on Sundays. Young women and African Americans were disproportionately represented as victims. Children were often present for the incident or members of the household. Strangulation and weapon-use were common. Suspects often flee the scene before law enforcement arrives making arrests difficult.
